About this destilado de agave
Maguey Melate Madre Cuixe from Adela Del Carmen Cruz Antonio was originally released as the February 2022 Mezcalero of the Month Club agave spirit. Adela believes that her palenque’s fresh mountain spring water makes her mezcal unique and distinguishable from the other 60-70 palenques in San Dionesio Ocotepec. Most of the palenques in this region use potable city water or well water, but Adela’s palenque was purposefully built outside of town in the natural landscape.
Maguey Melate was founded on two ideas: 1) Artisanal agave spirits are amazing and should be shared with the world, and 2) The faster-cheaper economy is a harmful force for people, the environment, and now agave spirits.
They believe if mezcal (and agave spirits) can be understood and appreciated at its full potential, people will show their preference for quality artisanal mezcal that is sustainably and fairly sourced. By raising consumer consciousness on the origins of mezcal and educating enthusiasts on matters of quality and character, informed people will be empowered to ensure the future of mezcal. To do this, they’re reaching a large audience with an impactful message: KEEP MEZCAL ARTISANAL!
Maguey Melate is perhaps most well-known for their Mezcalero of the Month Club, which delivers artisanal small-batch agave spirits directly to the doors of consumers in the US and Mexico. In addition to the monthly spirits, they offer exclusive content and interviews with producers. Single releases are also available in the Maguey Melate shop.
